"Tube Scoop" Picks Up Walnuts

My tube scoop makes it easy to pick walnuts up off the ground. It glides over my lawn with ease, says William Yewell, Ogden, Iowa.
  Made from 4-in. dia. thin wall plastic pipe, the scoop measures 36 in. long and is capped at one end. An A-shaped aluminum pipe handle is bolted to the ends of the pipe. Yewell simply pulls the tube along the ground to scoop up nuts.
  Its easy to use and saves a lot of time. I can make 2 or 3 passes without any walnuts falling out, says Yewell. I dont have to bend over at all. Itll hold about 40 walnuts, which is a lot more than commercial wire basket scoops can hold. When the scoop is full I just dump the nuts into a bucket.
